Crunchsports :    Jose Mourinho has been installed as the bookmakers’ favourites to be Chelsea’s next permanent manager following Pep Guardiola’s decision to join Bayern Munich.

Guardiola, who is currently on a one-year sabbatical after leaving Camp Nou at the end of last season, recently confirmed his plans to return to coaching before the start of next season and was believed to be Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’s top target to take charge of the club on a permanent basis at the end of the season once interim manager Rafael Benitez’s contract expires.

Guardiola had earlier this week put English clubs on alert by revealing in a message to the Football Association that he was keen on taking charge of a Premier League side, but on Wednesday afternoon Bayern confirmed that the 41-year-old had agreed to join them this summer on a three-year deal, succeeding Jupp Heynckes.
